I am a professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of Arizona and a member of the Program in Applied Mathematics and the BIO5 Institute.
I am interested in various aspects of the mechanics and mathematics of physical and biological systems. I enjoy studying fundamental theoretical problems and developing new techniques to answers scientifically relevant questions. More recently, my research interests have been focused on methods of applied mathematics, morphoelasticity (the modeling of elastic growth), the geometry and mechanics of proteins, microbiomechanics (the mechanics of microbial systems), the dynamics and statics of elastic rods, some dynamical systems, and other miscellaneous fun problems.
I am usually too busy to update my web page with excerpts from my research, but my list of publications is more or less up-to-date.
